Testing a new DNS prior to broad dissemination

Heres a trick that I'd like to remember. We just switched our DNS but it has not broadly propagated yet. But we really wanted to test it tonight. So here's what I did....

Go to-->Start-->Run
copy and paste this: notepad C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
scroll all the way down to the bottom of the file
add this as the last line:
(note - there has to be a tab, not a space between the address and url)

PS - I'm writing this down so that I remember to reverse the process some time.....

BTW - I'm 13th for fifth grade math on google....and 43rd for 5th grade. uhg....
